To celebrate 50 years of an American icon Ford will release the all new 2015 Ford Mustang in 2014. “We think Ford’s design team has a home run with this pony!” says Steve Brown of Brown Motors in Petoskey, MI.
“Ford Mustang inspires passion like no other car,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, global product development. “The visceral look, sound and performance of Mustang resonates with people, even if they’ve never driven one. Mustang is definitely more than just a car – it is the heart and soul of Ford.”
The new design of both the fastback and convertible recalls the essential character of the Mustang, paying homage to its 50 years of heritage with a contemporary look.
The all-new Mustang features a lower roof and wider rear fenders and track. The Mustang fastback has a more steeply sloped windshield and rear glass. The front of the car is defined by the modern signature shark-bite front fascia and trapezoidal grille.
The new Mustang will be available with three engines: a more powerful 5.0-liter V8, a 3.7-liter V6 and an all-new fuel-efficient 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine.
- Mustang GT continues with the latest edition of the throaty 5.0-liter V8, now featuring an upgraded valvetrain and cylinder heads that yield more than 420 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. A new intake manifold improves low-speed breathing for better fuel economy, idle stability and emissions.
- With at least 300 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque on tap from the standard 3.7-liter V6, even the most accessible Mustang delivers the performance customers expect.
- The Mustang EcoBoost engine uses direct injection, variable cam timing and turbocharging to deliver plenty of usable performance and projected segment-leading fuel efficiency. A unique intake manifold and turbocharger housing enable it to deliver the performance Mustang drivers expect with output projected at more than 305 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque.
The all-new Mustang features a significant amount of innovative technologies providing drivers with enhanced information, control and connectivity when they want it. From Intelligent Access with push-button start to SYNC® and MyKey® in every Mustang built, plus available Track Apps, MyColor gauges and new Shaker Pro audio system, drivers will be able to customize their time behind the wheel.

April 17, 2014, marks the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the original Ford Mustang. Every 2015 model will celebrate that milestone with a badge on the instrument panel that includes the galloping pony logo and the words “Mustang – Since 1964.” Mustang will continue to be built in the United States at Flat Rock Assembly Plant right here in Michigan.
